Ben Goldberg makes National Master

This weekend, at the 2010 Rhode Island Open, Ben Goldberg hit the magic 2201 rating, making him the latest area national master. The road was not easy-- he had to hold GM Ivanov to a draw in Round 3 and play two other master-level opponents to make this last push.

Ben has been a long-time player in Boylston Chess Club events, so we would like to congratulate him on this achievement.
